The Dido & Aeneas Orchestral Suite is a 21st Century Imagineering of Henry Purcell’s legendary work, told through a special selection of instrumental dances and never seen before new orchestrations of key vocal sections. This fifteen minute programmatic experience for Symphonic String Orchestra and Piano is in five key movements and includes specially composed parts for Double Bass and a fully integrated Piano part as key players within the ensemble. It is a bold, exciting and wildly emotional Imagineering of the Dido & Aeneas tragedy.
